Used to go there when we first moved to Nairobi and have nothing but good memories. Comfortable seating, good service-a very loungy place where you could while away some time. The food was not great but not bad either.

I have eaten in here a few times and I have to say the food isn't to bad at all. Depending on the weather, you can either eat inside or on there balcony. Located on Rhapta Road in westlands, it certainly is a little hidden treat. The service is good, and I haven't had any issues in there with time... More

Nice and small cosy bistrot. The food is good and service adequate. However, watch your credit card: they will insist of taking it, and after 5 minutes ask you to come enter the PIN. This is a big no-no as they have the same portable terminal as everywhere else.

Had brunch at this lovely little place. The soups are wonderful and are not the packet type that are just thrown into a pot of boiling water. Sumptuous, could be some of the best soup I've had. The main course, presentation, beautiful. Preparation, tops.tasted great. The staff however was not very helpful, and had a bad attitude. I would recommend... More
